Mike Dorsett Award

Welcome to our website!

Mike Dorsett Award

Mike Dorsett was a member of the Stockton Fire Department. His dedication to the fire department was exemplary. Unfortunately, he had cystic fibrosis and was unable to be around any smoke or environment that would impair his breathing ability. Though he was limited to what he could do on the fireground, he realized that there are many other activities within the fire department that he could participate in. Mike spent many hours at the fire hall keeping equipment in good condition and ready for use when a call came in. He was also a member of the fire police squad and could be depended on to help with their duties whenever he was needed. We lost Mike to his disease when he was in his early twenties but his memory and demonstrated dedication still lives on at the Stockton Fire hall today. This award was established to give recognition to the other fire police of our ranks that have also shown exemplary dedication to their departments and communities.
